neuromatt (1218) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 14, 2014
330 mL bottle from the LCBO, served in a stem glass. Pours black with a large, fluffy light brown head that remains and leaves a small amount of lace. The nose has big notes of charred malts, chipotle, smoked malts and espresso, paired with just a touch of herbal hops. The flavour is moderately sweet up front with chocolate malty notes and touches of earth and herbal hops. A distinct spiciness enters in the middle and builds towards the finish, imparting a mild chill heat. In the background, roasted malts, chocolate and perhaps a touch of espresso continue to develop, along with soft herbal hops. The finish is long and roasty, with a mild spiciness. On the palate, it is full in body with a smooth, creamy texture and average carbonation. Overall, a nice stouty ale with a significant peppery accent. The pepper is a bit too much for my taste, and I’d be intrigued to try the base without the chipotle. 2014-10-14

prawlie (1205) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2013
Half Pint at Euston Tap. Black with slight bubbly dark yellow-brown head. Spicy, ’hot’ but otherwise smooth chilli beer. Quite different to the barrel aged version if I recall it rightly.

thirstyrabbit (1190) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 25, 2012
Bottle. Dark body, medium tan head. Sweet and roasty aroma with some coffee. Big sweet and roasty taste. Finish reveals the chili heat. Not sure if I like chili in beers or not. If you want your beer to taste hot, why not just crank up the ABV? The stout base is good, however.

Bendrixian (1188) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 24, 2014
330ml bottle from LCBO. pours a jet black colour. Rich mocha/toffee aroma showing a hint of paprika spice. On the palate it drinks like a stout but has a certain chilli powdery spice and flavour profile. Sports a decent length and quite a good range of flavours this is a very interesting brew. Would love to try the barrel aged versions!
